We’ve made it back around to another market opening day!

Don’t forget: This week is Earth Week, and Monday the 22nd is Earth Day. Tech is celebrating all week long with events! Be sure to check out the events on campus. RCM is always “Going Green” and bringing you the best locally grown food out there!

Speaking of going green, there are still plenty of greens to be had on the market, and it won’t be too long before the other spring and summer delicacies are ready for the picking! Tomatoes, squash, onions, zucchini, eggplant…YUM! I can taste them now.

“one-third of all global emissions can be traced back to our food system…”

The Market is Open!


Hey everyone!

Beautiful weather today—the best kind for working in the garden! That’s where I’ll be.

We hope you were all able to visit the Drewry’s farm yesterday for their awesome farm tour. We got to see their orchards, the bee hives, the green house, and the commercial kitchen, not to mention Viney Creek Farm and their goats! If you wish you could have gone, but didn’t know about it, be sure to check our Facebook page for future events, as well as our RCM calendar of events under the “About” tab for exciting opportunities like this one.

We have a recently added farmer, Thundering Hooves, that sells horse-hair jewelry. This makes for a certainly unique product on our great market. A big welcome to them!

Greens are plentiful, such as cabbage, collard, and mustard. Also still abundant are Kale, Spinach, and Chard. Yum!

Also, if you missed it last week, RCM now has our very own bumper stickers. These can be found under the “RCM Products” category, and make a great addition to any surface :)

RCM Referral Program--You'll Want to Read This One!!


Hello to all RCM customers!

Here at RCM, we’ve decided to implement a referral program, simply named:

Introduce a Friend to Your Farmers!
(…And you could win a $20 Russellville Community Market (RCM) Gift Card!)

So, I’m betting you want to know the way this thing works.. well look no further:

Here’s how it works:

1. Ask for an RCM business card when you pick up your next order.

2. Print your name on the card, give it to a friend who doesn’t currently shop at RCM and ask them to turn it in when they pick up their first order.

3. When your friend comes to the Market, we’ll invite them to deposit the card with your name in a little green garden basket on the Market’s check-out table.

4. On the last Market day of the month in May, June and July we’ll draw one card from the basket. The winner receives $20 in credit applied to their RCM account. (And you have given your friend year ‘round access to nutritious and delicious local produce, meat, and other products grown by area farmers.)

Got it?! Ok, great! Be sure to be on the lookout for our RCM business cards at the market this week. We’ll do our best to make sure you have cards for all the friend referrals you can handle :)

Thanks everyone! And as always, if you have any further questions you can email your market managers, or give me a call at 913-636-8193.
